Mom in her kerchief and Dad in his cap had just settled down for a LONG winter's nap...

Until about 5:30am.

We both awoke to this at the top of our stairs:

Thankfully the boys know not to storm down the stairs. They are kind enough to give some warning so that I can grab the camera and turn on the Christmas tree lights.

We all were very excited, and I think the kids were very happy with Santa Claus.

Both Brendan and Jackson got air soft guns for Christmas. They have both wanted these for about two years now.

Jack Santa Ghillie
They also both got a Ghillie suit to wear during airsoft wars.

Emma had an American Girl Doll Christmas:

Emma Santa 2

Emma Santa 4
Instead of designing a look-alike doll, Emma chose Julie Albright. Actually Julie looks more like Emma than any of the custom doll choice combinations.

Brendan found the "ringing bell"...he must still believe.
B polar express

Jackson had a remote control Christmas:
Jack Santa 2

Jack got a Tonka XT vehicle, an Air Hogs helicopter and an Air Hogs car...

We promised Brendan that he could start his W.R. Case knife collection when he turned 10. My dad collected Case knives, and he gave Brendan and Jackson both a "My First Case Knife" tin set when they were born.

After the stockings were emptied and all of the Santa gifts were discovered, each child opened presents from Mom and Dad. They did not want the gift opening to end! :)

It looks like you had a fabulous Christmas! Kamree also got a bed for her American Girl, however, Santa scored a knock off at Toys R Us for $25.00 on Black Friday. It's a white bunk bed and is darling!

Hope you have a great week and the kids enjoy their new loot!

Looks like a GREAT Christmas. May I ask where you got some of the American Girl doll clothes? I really like the dress with the hot pink ribbon. I got a few from Zuilily but am looking for more.

Oh how my boys would love air sift and a ghilie suit. There is nowhere here to do that though...we are in the city.
